Usually on the 15th we have a NinaB. Designs blog hop. Because everyone is so busy this month we decided to skip it. I thought it would be fun to post  card showcasing Nina’s stamps anyway. The card also works great for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is to showcase your favorites. Some of my favorites are using dies, rhinestones, Memento Inks and my trusted corner chomper.

I started my card with a 3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The lower part was cut with the Country Landscape Memory Box die. The upper part was cut with the Simon Says Stamp exclusive Falling Stars die.  The houses were sponged with Toffee Crunch, the trees with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. The sky was sponged with Nautical Blue Memento ink. The bottom corners were rounded before the layers were adhered to another piece of white cardstock exactly the same size.

Stardust Stickles was added on the bottom, on top of the trees and houses as well as in the star holes. Silver cord was wrapped around the lower edge and topped with a yellow button. A sentiment from Just Sayin’ was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of the Nested Lacey Pennant Nestabilities® dies.

Yellow Bazzill cardstock was cut and embossed with the smallest Star Nestabilities® die. The star was adhered to the right hand side of the sentiment and topped with a rhinestone. The sentiment strip was adhered to the image layer with foam adhesive squares. the layer was adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 10″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half with more foam adhesive squares. More rhinestones (under the sentiment and above the button) and a double row of paper piercing above the layer finish off the card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
